Question of the Week: What is your favorite holiday lip look?

EauMG’s Answer: It depends as I’m rather fickle with these things. I’d say the obvious one, red. But, I also like really dark lip colors and sometimes I’ll go for the light brown/mauve lipsticks with too much eyeliner. This year, I’ve been craving glossy red lips and metallic eyeshadows.

Question of the Week: So let’s hear it. Did you make any Black Friday/Cyber Monday beauty purchases? Spill the beans!

EauMG’s Answer: Well, it sure was tempting but I didn’t buy anything. Hard to believe, I know. There were plenty of great deals but I didn’t *need* anything so I didn’t buy anything. I’m trying to save up for a trip in the next few months. I’m amazed by my willpower at this time. What about you?

Question of the Week: What’s your go-to party makeup look? Smoky eyes? Cat-eye liner? Bright lips?

EauMG’s Answer: Wow, I’m so flattered that you think I party :) Honestly, it really depends on the occasion and the time of year. This time of the year, I’m most likely going to do minimal eye makeup and really dark lips. Other times of the year, I may do a matte red lipstick or bright coral with cat-eye liner. I

Question of the Week: Do you use face primer? If so, what are some of your favorites?

EauMG’s Answer: Now that I use BB creams and cushion compacts, I use face primer a lot less than I used to. But, I do use it when I wear foundation. My favorite primer for my dry skin is Reviva Labs Makeup Primer (review here). It works well and the price is great. I also like… Continue reading | 4 Comments
